Subject[RFC PATCH 4/4] KVM: arm64: Distinguish cases of memcache allocations completely
Date
With a guest translation fault, the memcache pages are not needed if KVM
is only about to install a new leaf entry into the existing page table.
And with a guest permission fault, the memcache pages are also not needed
for a write_fault in dirty-logging time if KVM is only about to update
the existing leaf entry instead of collapsing a block entry into a table.

By comparing fault_granule and vma_pagesize, cases that require allocations
from memcache and cases that don't can be distinguished completely.
